Rule change: Inactive houses/properties

The rule regarding inactive houses and businesses being removed, will change.
Currently, players must have been online just one second in the past 14 days to avoid losing their houses or businesses.

Starting 1st of November 2020, the new rule is:
Players must have played at least 4 hours in the past 2 weeks to keep their houses and businesses.

Additionally:
Players with their house deleted due to inactivity will receive a 50% cash refund based on the house interior price. (example: if your house had interior ID 25, you will receive a $10m refund - the original interior price is $20m)
Players that have their business deleted due to inactivity will receive a cash refund based on business type and location (this is a fixed price and non-negotiable; it is much lower than the realistic purchase price)
No refunds will be given for any properties removed before 01/11/2020

This change is made to avoid the known problem of players logging in just to avoid losing properties with no intention to play.
If you know that you will be unable to have a 4-hour playtime in 2 weeks, you may use vacation mode.
If you have used up all your vacation modes, I recommend you to sell your properties instead.
If you have no interest in playing on IM anymore, use common sense, and sell your properties to active players.

Yes, you have worked hard and long for your properties, but there's no point in having hundreds of houses of businesses using up slots/locations if you have no time or intention to play anymore.

This will go into effect on November 1st, meaning players that do not have 4 hours of playtime between tomorrow (17th October) and 1st of November will have their properties removed, even if they logged in.

Make it that player should receive at least 4 PT instead of being in-game for 4 hours.

vacation mode gives you 4 weeks of pause + another 2 weeks to get 4 hours of playtime.
if thats still not enough, your only choice is to sell them on time or you will lose them with a small refund.

The 4 hours put in by players who will play the bare minimum every 2 weeks will make no difference.


Should try to reorganize vacation mode so not everything has to be used all at once, so we can pick inbetween one and four weeks, while saving any leftover time for later use. Given that nobody can go completely away anymore, you should consider raising the number of houses and businesses someone can own. There's really no incentive to do anything in the game for a lot of us when it comes to houses, businesses and money as everything is capped. It should be balanced between having a reason to own something in the game and having to commit to the game on a regular basis, otherwise owning stuff in IM is like owning a pet.

does AFK time count in those 4 hours? if it does then that seems like an easy exploit
